Hi Ian - how are you doing? There's a fair amount of Bruce Cockburn gracing my collection. I first became aware of him in 1996 with the Charity of Night album (I believe Bob Weir plays on a couple of tracks) He's not always a comfortable listen but he's pretty much an essential one in my view. As you say, a very talented musician.

afternoon rob,

'your boy' becks is in toronto today - the city is all abuzz. doesn't look like he'll see any action though... but wait a second, how is that unlike any other 'football' match! ; )

oddly enough, cockburn only has one official live release, creatively titled 'live cd'. i say odd, because the man has gigged forever! the recording was made at ontario place, 8-14/15-89. okay CD. the final track is a cover of - always look on the bright side of life.

hope your're enjoying a lazy sunday.

ian

Hey Ian - I know what you mean regarding football - whole lot of nothing going on for most of the time.

I have that Bruce Cockburn live album you mention and also one called You Pay Your Money and You Take Your Chance, which is more a live ep than a full album (only 6 tracks). I'd love to hear more of his live stuff but I'm guessing he isn't particularly taper friendly as I've never seen anything around. Now wouldn't he be a great addition to the Archive?
